The Social God and the Relational Self: A Trinitarian Theology of the Imago Dei
The first of a six-volume contribution to systematic theology, this text extends the insights of contemporary Trinitarian thought to theological anthropology. It develops a communal understanding of the imago deli in the face of the demise of the centred self. It reformulates an understanding of the self in postmodern context, a context that is characterized by the loss of self coupled with the quest for relationality in community.
